Here we describe a combination of neodymium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet 1064-nm laser emission and injection of 75% dextrose solution to treat lower limb reticular veins. The strategy is known as cryo-laser cryo-sclerotherapy. Preliminary outcomes are reported, showing ecchymosis in up to 30% of cases and intravenous thrombus in 14%. A satisfactory vessel elimination is found in 86% of cases. No improvement or worsening was reported in 14% of patients. The paper provides technical details with the aim of promoting homogeneity in future data collection, so fostering publication of long-term effectiveness and related comparative evaluation with sclerotherapy and laser treatment alone.
